Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
Amendment to Credit Agreement
On September 24, 2012, Gryphon Gold Corporation, a Nevada corporation (the Company), and Borealis Mining Company, a Nevada corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (BMC), entered into an amendment agreement (the First Amendment Agreement) with Waterton Global Value, L.P., a limited partnership formed under the laws of the British Virgin Islands (Waterton), to the Senior Secured Gold Stream Credit Agreement, dated April 18, 2012 (the Original Credit Agreement, and together with the First Amendment Agreement, the Senior Facility), to increase Watertons commitment amount under the Senior Facility by U.S. $5 million (the Facility Increase), bringing the aggregate borrowings under the Senior Facility from U.S. $15 million to U.S. $20 million.
Pursuant to the terms of the First Amendment Agreement, amounts drawn down from the Senior Facility will be repayable in monthly payments beginning in December 2012 and ending in November 2014, with initial payments being approximately U.S. $50,000 per month and increasing to approximately U.S. $900,000 per month in March 2013 through to the end of the term in November 2014. The specific repayment mechanics applicable to any principal amounts outstanding under the Senior Facility remain unchanged. The Senior Facility is secured by a first priority lien on the assets of the Company and BMC.
Gold and Silver Supply Agreement
As consideration for providing the Facility Increase and amending the repayment schedule of the Senior Facility, the Company and Waterton agreed to amend the terms of their existing Gold and Silver Supply Agreement to permit Waterton to purchase all of the Companys production at a 3% discount to prevailing spot prices.
